Welcome!

This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!

Fall: Nature Walk

At preschool this week, Brayden's theme is Fall. He came home with this fun bracelet, so I thought I would share it.

AGE RANGE
Probably one and up. I would think a one year old could find interest in putting this bracelet on and collecting things.

SKILLS DEVELOPED
  • Science
  • Exercise
SUPPLIES
  • Masking tape
  • Baggie or basket (or something to put things in)
  • Place to walk

PREP

  • Dress child appropriately for the weather

ACTIVITY

  • Put masking tape around your child's wrist. You want the tape "backwards" so that the sticky side is facing up. You don't want the tape to stick to your child.
  • Go for a walk and find things in nature. For the lighter and smaller things, have your child stick them to his nature bracelet. For the heavier and larger items, have your child put them in the baggie or basket or whatever you brought along.
  • Take them home and talk about the items found. For the older child, you could look up the items he found and read about them.

Waiting for a pretty day to do this one. Charis is big on collecting "treasures" outside. It'll be nice not to wash so many leaves and tiny rocks that I forgot to get out of my pockets before I do laundry. :)

So neat! Unfortunately fall is already over here and we have snow and ice on the ground :( But I will definitely do this next year with Tobias!

Wow...I guess I won't feel sorry for myself with my long winters!

Winter...what's that? Seriously, we haven't seen REAL snow in forever.

Raegan, I could always bring some with me to Virginia, we've got plenty to spare here. I doubt it would make it in the moving truck though! :)
